GOD IS ALL ( 2020 ) 2020/07/10

Time keeps flying, like birds in flocks

Across the mountains, fields and rocks

O’er meadows wide midst giant hills

With rapid rivers, rushing rills

How wonderful to hear the sound

Of nature spreading all around

Be sure, our God is always there

To save each from this dark despair

Oh blesséd Lord, You do not fail

And with Your help, all will avail!

Now  I  have  had  a  thousand  dreams

And  planned  at  least  a  hundred  schemes

I’ve  wished  perhaps  five  hundred  more

Before  I  close  life’s  final  door.

I’ve  tried  so  hard  to  not  pretend

That  I  know  how  my  days  will  end

Ere  I  have  had  the time  to  leave

Instructions  as  to  how  you  grieve.

Remember  me  please,   If  you  do

But  only  of  my  love  for  you

I  can  not  ask for some  thing  more

Except,  my  dear,  just  one  encore   !

 

HAPPY CHANCE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/24

The  wind  blows  wild  and  plays  a  song

I’d  like  to  learn  to  hum  along,

It  isn’t  hard  to  sing  a  tune

With  words  that  rhyme  like  June  and  moon.

Such  mirth  it  brings  to  wonder  this

And  to  imagine  youth’s  first  kiss,

I  wish  that  I  might be  again

That  girl  I  was  away  back  when

The  thrill  of  love  and  sweet  romance

Could  offer  me   a   happy  chance  !

 

 

 

SURPRISE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/21

See  sunlight  streaming  through  the  trees

While  leaves  are  swaying  in  the  breeze

The  morning  air’s  so  fresh  and  cool

The  rising  sun  shines  like  a  jewel

Oh  what  a  great  day  this  will  be

A  gift  from  our  own  Diety,

God  bless  us  all  as  we  arise

Let’s  pray  this  day’s  full  of  surprise  !

 

THE SEARCH ( 2020 ) 2020/06/11

What  is  it  that  I’m  searching  for

Will  I  unearth  the  hidden  door

That  leads  to  God’s  exotic  place

Wherein  one  finds  His  secret  space  ?

Thus  live  my  life  without  the  pain

Of  losing  those  I  love  again

Seek  help  from  God  high  on  His  perch

Beg  Him  to  aid  me  in  my  search  !

My eyes are full of wonder

My heart so wild with glee

What is this spell I’m under

How does it affect me ?

I’m a child who loves my God

And wishing all I could

That most lives are not that hard

And mercy’s understood !

AMEN.

 

THE PATH ( 2020 ) 2020/05/16

What is it we are waiting for

The peace of God to use our door,

To enter in and take the space

Reserved for His Eternal Grace ?

How can it be this world’s destroyed

And of all fairness, now devoid

While angels weep and rain their tears

Upon this place, too full of fears ?

Where do we turn to reach You, Lord

That we may be of one accord

Oh, dearest God please help us find

The path that to Your Heart unwinds !

Oh blessed Lord, accept my plea

Grant me the strength to set me free

Open my eyes that I may see

The love and care You’ve offered me.

I am Your servant meek and mild

Your aged and obedient child

I give to You all I possess

My dreams and hopes, my happiness !

 

SECOND CHANCES ( 2020 ) 2020/05/10

There remains certain moments we encounter every day

When we are at our leisure and the world’s prepared to pray

Aft the silence has been broken and eventide occurs

And times spent all together aren’t his or aren’t hers .

When all our simple pleasures are aligned there side by side

And the honeymoon is over without some silly pride

May the Good Lord take the measure of tasks already done

Guaranteeing life’s diversion twist happiness and fun !

THANX TO SECOND CHANCES

 

EACH DESTINY ( 2020 ) 2020/04/29

The words appear, they fade away

Or pause to dare another day

They fill the air and dissipate

Some came early and could not wait .

A world of waste and moments lost

This old age which disaster costs

Then ring the bell and make great noise

Pretend to gain some senile poise.

Reach out , reach out , what fear have we

Too late to change each destiny !

Now I have dreamt a dream or two

And spent a lifetime loving you

I’ve prayed and hoped we two would be

Together through eternity !

It seems each road shall have an end

Without a lover or a friend

The seasons change or pass away

And move on by, day after day

The stars above fade aft each night

And disappear in morning’s light.

The sun will break its fast at dawn

While we are left to carry on

How lonely that one lifetime seems

With out its history and dreams

As all pass into the oblique

Deserting every quest we seek !

 

TRY TO SURVIVE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/26

Dear Lord above please set us free

From much of life’s indignity

Please teach us now how to survive

These terrors which all seem to thrive

Be thoughtful of each act performed

And to the rules try to conform.

Be kind to those who are alone

And left to linger on their own

Beg God remember everyone

Whose suffering is not yet done

Protect us Lord from daily fright

With rising sun to closing night !

Take  a good look around and tell me what you see

The  beauty that is God’s and life’s  infinity

Please hold me by the hand and  teach me  how to pray

Help me to love God and to worship Him each day !

 

AMEN.

 

THE WONDER OF GOD (2020)

Outside the window the world awaits

For the Lord to raise the pearly gates

And for all the clouds to disappear

Before we have spent half of the year

The time has arrived and gone away

To leave us bereft and in dismay.

Dear Lord above forgive us our sin

Open our hearts and welcome God in

May we forever live in the glow

Of every wonder God has to show !

Oh little child who dotes on sweets

With dancing shoes attached to cleats

Black patent taps that click away

And to the world new steps display.

This child to theatre newly brought

With skills and talents often sought

Hear now the sound of tapping feet

Proceed to stage, steps and the street.

How shall we serve our Lord the best

Accepting every sort of test

And understanding as we do

That all we are belongs to You !

So  many words spring from the pain

That  is attacking  me again,

Oh,  how I wish  one day to be

From  all of this  forever  free !

 

JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2020 ) 2020/03/22

Oh wind that breaks upon the waves

And breeze that shares each morning’s gaze

Teach me to chant a pirate song

That I to seafaring belong.

Oh save my heart from lonesomeness

While all my handicaps confess

Help me to strive for constancy

And all my weaknesses foresee.

Hand me the light that I might shine

It’s endless glow on yours and mine

God let us put our toys away

Make ready for our Judgement Day !

 

BORN TO DIE ( 2020) 2020/03/21

My  heart calls out His holy name

And  searches for  the way He came

To  Calvary onto  the cross

To suffer there man’s  greatest loss,

But  who am  I   to question why

The  Son of God was born  to die !

Our Father who abides on high

His wisdom reigns down from the sky

Have pity on the earth below

Where man and beast do ebb and flow

We crave Your Help and Tender Care

For soon there will be nothing there.

If man could but sustain his faith

Arising o’er the power of wraith

To triumph and reclaim his right

Hence revel in his God’s delight

Achieve that goal before one dies

Upon God’s help whence love resides !

Too soon,  my  Lord,  I  give and share

For You,  my dreams  of  hope and  care

Begin  and  end  in  joyful  praise

I  beg of  You,   Your peaceful  ways.

Protect me  Lord,  I’ll ask  no more

Than  that Your  heart’s  an open door

That  offers  me a  final  choice,

Lift  up my  heart and  hear  my voice !

 

AMEN

 

THE ECHOES ( 2020 )

Oh blessed Lord, do hear my plea

Have pity on a child like me

I am Your servant sad and low

That folows ever where You go

I wait Your Word with rapid breath

For I am Yours until my death.

There is no day without Your Light

Nor any love that shines so bright

The angels sing Your praise on high

Their voices reaching for the sky

The flutter of their wings is heard

They echo every single word.

I love You Lord and always will

Until earth’s sounds at last are still !

 

GOD LOVES US ALL ( 2020 ) 2020/03/16

There  was a  street  that I used  to know

When  I was a girl so  long  ago

With an old house that had  three large floors

Lots of windows  and  quite a few  doors.

Dozens of  roses,  black  iron torch

Both  back yard  and front,  plus a great porch

Tomatoes,  peppers,  carnations  too

A home  full of love  much overdue

As  I’ve  wandered down  memory’s  lane

Couldn’t  help singing  a  glad refrain

Reminding  myself  God loves us all

Whether  we’re  skinny,  fat,  short or tall !

Oh  sad the day  the Christ did die

And  bid this world  His last goodbye

He  suffered there  upon the cross

While  the whole world  endured the loss.

God’s  darkness fell  that distant day

And  since then  has not passed away

We’re  ready Lord,  and waiting here

For  You at last  to reappear !

AMEN.

There  she is  our Lady Liberty

Symbol  of this  safe home of the  free

She’s  the  grandest of all  that we sight

There in the Harbor  each day and night.

She  spurs us on  to do greater things

Like  prayers we say  and hymns  we  sing

We’ll  join our hearts  and hands together

Through  pleasant days  or stormy weather.

Let’s  ask our  God  to protect us all

In  case old Satan  decides to call  !

 

 

 

AT LAST RELEASE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/11

I’d  like to think  that  I recall

The  tender years  when I was small,

I  sat upon my  grandpa’s  knee

And  snuggled  while he read  to me.

There  was a story  I  loved best

Both  head and shoulders o’er  the rest

About  the night  our Christ  was born

And  how the world  rejoiced that  morn

As  angels sang  and skies  did glow

The  world did kneel  and honor show.

God  placed  His star  high in the sky

With  earth  to note its  passing by,

His  promise of  eternal  peace

And  from all  sin,  at last release !

AMEN.

Man  cannot live  without a dream

Believing  elsewise  is  extreme

How  difficult  without  a cause

Our  lives  are dull  and lack  applause

There  is a vision  all do need

To  raise  each up,  to help succeed

We  have a God,  be  not afraid

He  is our Friend,  our Help,  our Aid

And  in the  end  when life seems  done

Tis  when our  journey’s  just begun   !

 

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/05

When  I was small  and but  a child

I  spoke in manner  sweet and mild

Twas  not a time  of angry ways

For  kindness  dwelt  in all our days.

We  spared each other  any pain

Determined  to help  and explain

Our  words displayed  the constant grace

Of  honesty  while face to face.

How  clever that  our role should be

To  echo  God’s integrity

And  live with  honor  all our days

To  seek God’s  love and sing  His Praise  !
